Already poor structure & grammar. Could sense it was bad immediately. Please refine it.

This is how I write. I do it for fun. You don’t like it go somewhere else.

Don't pay attention to the trolls. They only have something to say because they don't have anything better to do, and their lives are so frustrating I guess they feel a need to take it out on the internet. Besides, its not the writers responsibility to worry about their grammar or spelling, it's the editor's XD

Thank you , Lucy

I just get tired of all the ill mannered slobs we have to be around these days. I never say rude things about anyone’s works because everyone has their own style and I was raised to respect other people.

Be that as it may, I did block the moron

Also this actually caught my interest faster than I expected. Great concept. Reminds me of Tom Clancy a little but that's a good thing.

Thank you again. I really hope you enjoy the story.
Hang on to your seat because things really start to get wild very soon

at first read, its reads acceptable. It's an action-driven story. Many will like that. You should just really use your software to get rid of the spelling mistakes. You should describe the action more, because that is the focus of your story. describe the environment and the steps of action.
